My students love learning about the presidents and American symbols. Here is a drawing of George Washington. I hate to admit it, but my students can draw better than me.
Here is a great video on George Washington from Scholastic. Click here to watch it.
My students loved hearing all the interesting facts of the various presidents in this video.
As we learn about each American symbol or president, we put our papers into a folder. They love adding papers to their folder.
I gave my students review sheets for homework this week. It reviews many second grade skills such as counting money, telling time, addition and subtraction with regrouping, contractions, and plurals. Click on the picture of the second grade review for your FREE copy.
